Slander propaganda

You might consider action and today is the day
There’s a climate emergency that won’t go away
If we don’t work together to protest and shout
The message won’t be heard and will not get out

Imagine a world filled with peace and free energy
From renewables for all and plant billions of trees
I won’t happen if you believe the Courier Mail
If you don’t protect and take action the ecosystem could fail
But if you start today to protect life on Earth
End the coal days with a renewable rebirth

Take the day off to take Climate Action
To stop the Climate Emergency and government Inaction

You might consider to #disrupt and #disobey
The propaganda in the Courier Mail today

Get out of your home and take over the street
When we all work together the climate emergency is beat

There’s a climate emergency, time for you
Glue yourself to the road with superglue

Get on the fresh air and protest today
Or the #Climate Emergency is coming your way

In the numbers please read this one

It is in the numbers and now is the time

To make the change and start feeling fine

Are you ready for my magic tricks

Listen as I count back from six

Six, five, four, three two one

I’ll be loving kind and the world is one

I’ll live in love and nurture every life

I do not harm and make no strife

Imagine peace, look into my eyes

Relax and let me hypnotize

Six fix four three two one

Peace on Earth has now begun

I’ll volunteer and all will thrive

I’ll live in joy happy to be alive

I nurture all and have gratitude

With a compassionate understanding attitude

In the numbers change is here

Old habits dropped from this year

No violence only bliss and unity

I’ll nurture self and my community

654321

Peace on Earth has now begun

I listened and looked into your eyes

I feel secure, I am hypnotized

Thank you now I’m feeling fine

I believe you and that now is the time

Sunny Morning

Crepuscular rays of the sun through the trees
In the dawn there is silence, not even a breeze
Rising in the East and flying through the sky
Shining on all from your birth till the day that you die
There’s blue sky, fresh air and flowers around
In this place of abundance birds and trees all abound
I love the morning that is born from the night
When the Earth spins around and we get sunlight
I give thanks for the beauty and light in the morning
I give thanks for all life and the sun as it is dawning
Without the sun and trees little moisture would rise
Then there would be very few clouds in the skies
There would be no Thunderclouds to make falling rain
To wash away garbage and bring new growth again
I love the mountains, the trees and the rays of the sun
Because lonely life in the darkness would not be fun

World Peace 1

Peace and love table at fantAsian eatery Nimbin

#DisruptTS19

Sitting up late one night I had a thought of war
How the whole world would be happy if it was gone forever more
I thought about a world where everyone lives in love and peace
And how we’d laugh, smile and dance with joy the day we end the war disease

We’d eliminate all fear and all humans could grow and thrive
The day we close the armies will be great to be alive
Melt down all the warships, tanks and fighter planes
Give the soldiers all jobs planting trees, fruit, growing grains

We’ll remove the border walls and no more competition
There will no longer be the need for the old Waring tradition
Because instead of fighting, everyone will lend a hand
When we end all war will be an awesome day and grand

It will happen in my lifetime and it’s going to be great
The day we all unite will be the day we celebrate
The ending of the wars, the killing and the fear
And all the weapons gone and the peace that will appear

Everyone will share their food and there will be no scarcity
The day the war machines stop will be the day humanity is free
From the fear and anxiety and loathing of each other
Look in the eyes of everyone and you’ll see your sister, brother

We’ll be happy and all smiling, forgiving with compassion
With no more separation and competition we will fashion
A world of peace and love with happiness the plan
Where everyone can celebrate, boy, girl, woman man

Now you’ve heard my story let’s begin today
Imagine all the happiness when all wars go away
You can start where you are and achieve your inner peace
Eliminate your guns and fear of other people disease

Because that is where it starts when you dehumanize
When you think of other people as less with judgement on your eyes
And you impose on others your judgement about being
And enforce it with a war, is the scenario I’m seeing

But you don’t need to be scared or bullying and so demanding
When you can be accepting, listening, caring and understanding
And approach all people as humans with love and with compassion
A world of peace without war, the whole will fashion

All people came together with love and peace their job
United all the world as One United Mob
Because war was bad for business and war a social failure
And it started with an idea that spread, one night in Australia

One Friday Afternoon

One Friday Afternoon

It started on a Friday in a land not far away and the idea spread like wildfire and they began anew that day.
He stood up in a market place and read out his idea
“Lets Unify the Whole Planet and make all borders disappear”
“Let’s eliminate all scarcity and ensure a more than a basic wage”
“Let’s have a single Global Currency for Living, commerce and trade”
“Let’s eliminate all Nations, Passports, Visas, Border Walls”
“Let’s close all the armies, navies, airforces too and have no weapons at all”
And as he planted seeds his crowd it grew and grew
until the Whole World was listening not just one or two
He said, Everyone can have free energy, renewable and then we all will thrive
“When we end all governments will be a great day to be alive”
“Do no harm and nurture all and simplify all laws”
“Support and love all people and lift up all the poor”
Have a governance of things based on compassion and doing no harm
Then all people can live in love without fear, in security, without alarm”
Let’s make all food organic, all medicine for free,
free public transport, free schools and homes and life will be easy
“All people just want love, security, happiness and compassion
To create a life of love where all can thrive and live in passion
One Friday afternoon the man stood up and said
He told them his Ideas and world wide they spread

The voices of the dead

Nimbin Cemetery, Australia, 8am Sunday 19 May 2019

I went to visit the dead today

At the cemetery and listen to what they had to say

“We are the dead and the victims of laws

And injustice the ones that died from your wars

People keep dying please change this condition

Of your injustice system called drug prohibition

 

There were mothers and fathers and young people we grieve

He died from FLACA at 23, one New Years Eve

Writhing and screaming he was overheating

Boom Boom Boom of the Doof then his heart just stopped beating

 

A whole family but the baby died in a smash

Of an alcoholic driver who had a car crash

The beaten and murdered children and wives

When pissed dad arrived home who feared for their lives

Let’s not forget those who died from cancer

Who couldn’t access cannabis as a life enhancer

Prohibition of drugs is social abuse

Locking up people for recreational use

Did you hear about how young Jake Monaghan died?

ODed from the drugs his mother supplied

 

Prohibition of drugs is an outdated law

That criminalises the socially vulnerable, sick, black and poor

Police become dealers and deal drugs

To justify their jobs and do deals with thugs

Selling black market heroine, cocaine and ice

To keep prisons full and meet KPI’s

 

Racially profiling the coloured and poor

Died in the lock up, crushed behind a cell door

As I sit here I am looking down at the ground

Where I performed CPR on a young man who drowned

Choked on his vomit we tried but he died

I met his mum dad and siblings and we all cried

 

Today I went to honour the dead

At Nimbin Cemetery and this is what I said

Dead spirits I’d love it if you would help me

Harm Minimise, End Prohibition and make Cannabis Free

If I was a teacher I would give you a fail

For your punitive justice system and the way that you jail

The sick, poor and black recreational users

When it is clear to all that the system abuses

 

Drug prohibition doesn’t stop demand for drugs

Just puts it in the hands of criminals and thugs

The cost of prohibition is millions each year

To imprison the harmless and put people in fear

Harm minimisation is good for your health

Sharing and caring and rehabilitate yourself

 

I went to the cemetery and listened to the dead

End Prohibitions their spirits all said

The Party Party Party

Lets Party Party Party Vote 1 Thundercloud for President of the Party Party Party

Corruption is the norm, big business stirring shit

Clive Palmer and Scott Morrison all play their part in it.

Corruption was the norm and the people had a reason

To overthrow the government, they were accused of treason

Propaganda was the news, Fox was telling lies

News Paper Corporation, Fake News in disguise

Propaganda was the news, Censorship was rife

Free speech was suppressed, people feared for their life

Politicians taking bribes, democracy sold free

Represent elite but not you or me

Politicians taking bribes, disguised as a donation

The people had no say, the oligarchic nation

Big business in control, none of them paying tax

But so many homeless people, have fallen through the cracks

Big business in control, screwing over you

Puppet politicians, we all know it’s true

The The People had enough and they all got together

So the Party Party Party was born and we partied on forever

Banished the Oligarchs and the people had a party

The bestest ever Party, The Party Party Party

The Party Party Party is here to save the day

Join the Party Party Party and have a happy day

The Party Party Party wants everyone to thrive

To dance and sing, play music instead of just survive

The Party Party Party will make a three day week

So everyone is happy and working at their peak

Then we will make sure that all people get a raise

To have extra money for partying on the extra weekend days

End all prohibition and get rid of unjust laws

Dismantle the armed forces and end all the wars

End ownership of land and rent free where you live

Everyone will have a home, another thing we’ll give

Everyone a job to repair the damaged land

The Party Party Party has a plan that’s grand

Vo te the The Party Party Party is here to save the day

Join the Party Party Party and have a happy day

The Party Party Party wants everyone to thrive

To dance and sing, play music instead of just survive

If you’re sick of dinosaurs this is what I say

Vote the Party Party Party and the dinosaurs fade away

We’ll open up the borders so you’re free to move about

Tax the Corporations and chuck income tax out

Give everyone a pay rise and more than a basic wage

Make all education free and lower the retirement age

Give everybody annual leave of at least six weeks

For resting and recovery, bush walks and swims in creeks

The Party Party Party we have an awesome plan

Come join the Party Party Party, happiness for all our plan

The Party Party Party is here to save the world

For peace and joy and freedom of every boy and girl

The Party Party Party when we win we’ll have a dance

With lights, music and good food, you can wear your Party Pants

So that you can party, do you want to know what else

The Party Party Party will give Universal Free Health

Care for every man and woman, every boy and girl

Join the Party Party Party we are here to save the world

With our loving and our caring, our joy and bliss compassion

Let’s make a better world as happiness  is our passion

We are the Party Party Party and we have disco lights

Vote the Party Party Party you’ll love our Party Nights

WITH The Party Party Party your mind will be set free

And the Party Party Party will legalise LSD

Our policy is simple to nurture and do no harm

To love and care for all the Earth, to End All Wars, Disarm

And then we all can Party On in Peace and all will thrive

When the Party Party Party wins will be a great day to be alive

So come and join the  Party you can have a Party too

The Party Party Party for the people and the planet too

Because we know you’re tired of the left and right inaction

We’ll uniify the Earth and every single faction

With the Party Party Party you will party day and night

To celebrate the end of wars and all humans unite

To live in peace and harmony let’s make the change this year

Let’s make compassion the norm and eliminate all fear

So come on everybody act now with your heart

Join the Party Party Party and let the Party start.

Lets Party
